Impotency has been reported as a side effect suffered by men who took the medication Propecia. Propecia is a drug used for the treatment of male patterned baldness. Propecia manufactured by Merck & Co. has become a target for lawsuit filings by men who contend that they were never told of irreversible sexual side effects prior to taking Propecia.
Men have claimed that a cluster of clinical sexual dysfunction side effects have plagued them since their ingestion of Propecia. These side effects include erectile dysfunction, sexual dysfunction, lack of libido, impotency, penile shrinkage, decreased amount of semen, and decreased ejaculatory volume. After a prolonged problem with erectile dysfunction and decreased semen production, some former Propecia users have claimed that they are now impotent. Impotency in a young sexually active male is a tragedy.
Impotency in a young adult male may destroy his relationship with his spouse or sexual partner. Relationships and marriages have been broken. Impotency can have a life-altering impact on its victims and their families. Current lawsuits being brought against Merck & Co allege emotional distress as part of a damage claim. Men contend that they were not warned of potential sexual dysfunction prior to taking Propecia.
